Sweet cherry pie filling combined with luscious dark chocolate cake mix, all topped with a decadent Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting. Who could ask for more?
I had this idea in my head for a while to combine cherry pie filling and brownie mix for a decadent chocolate cherry bar. Well after two epic fails, I opted to scrap the brownie idea and go for this amazing Chocolate Cherry Cake. It’s sweet, rich, moist and creamy smooth. It’s a perfect indulgence when your sweet tooth is calling for chocolate!
The recipe is just four ingredients – dark chocolate cake mix, a can of cherry pie filling, one egg and a cup of water. I decided if I was going to go all out, I was going to GO. ALL. OUT. Enter this velvety chocolate cream cheese frosting. I could seriously eat this stuff with a spoon, spread it on toast or any other crazy obsessive thing one does with a really amazing chocolate spread like this.
Be careful, it’s dangerous. And you probably won’t want to share.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with cooking spray.
Beat chocolate cake mix, egg and water in a large mixing bowl, on medium speed for about 1 minute. Gently fold in cherry pie filling.
Pour batter into prepared baking dish and bake for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting, beat together butter and cream cheese until smooth, about a minute. Slowly add sifted powdered sugar, salt and cocoa, then beat on high for 1-2 minutes, until fluffy. Stir in vanilla.
Spread immediately on the cooled cake. Store leftovers, covered, in the refrigerator.
Don't want chocolate frosting? Omit the cocoa powder and use extra powdered sugar if needed to reach the desired texture.
